Reuse, Repair, Recycle, Reload

Postby Nick-In-England » 25 Jul 2007, 11:19

After my holiday to the beach, my psp has not played games, due to the large amout of sand I was forced to remove from its disk drive.
Goddamn it.
But today, I was so angered by its inability to entertain me, aside from sitting there going:

"I'm still useful, I can play movies you have uploaded and music on my stereo speakers!"

I just picked it up, whilst it was loading, and threw it across the room. Aside from the hidden safety parchute feature I did not know it had, It commenced loading as soonas it struck the partician wall in my room.

I was now able to commence beating the crap out of oversized dragons on Monster Hunter Freedom.

So my my question is, what is the most unusual repair method you have ever used on a broken device?

Or What is the most destructive thing you have done to a games console in pure frustration.

OR What has frustrated you the most on a video game.

my friend has dropped many a GBA, DS and N64 in his Tea, and they all still work.. better than before actually.

I personally rammed my GC full of bluetak in order to retreive a small piece of glass that had fallen into the top.. It worked for a little while longer.


Oh, and i dropped my Laptop to get he screen to work (no idea why)
and currently my powercable (which snapped at the latop power point) is being help up with cellotape and duct tape, but needs constant manovering to keep the power going..

speaking of which..

How can you drop an N64 into your tea? Unless you have a sink or bathtub full of tea

I have, on more than one occasion, diagnosed and/or worked around a heat dissipation problem by working on laptops inside the freezer.

I still say the weirdest cure for a borked hard drive is throwing it in the freezer over night.

I got Super Mario Bros. (yes, the NES game) stuck in the wall. It solved the problem....the problem that I couldn't get past this one part with moving platforms. I'll never have the problem again....
